The "Cool" Details Behind GA's Latest FIKI Program As previously detailed, ANN had exclusive and unprecedented access to the Cirrus Aircraft team that created GA's latest FIKI certified airframe. It was a fascinating process... to look into and through ALL aspects of the design, manufacture, testing and certification of the 'Known Ice" version of the SR-22. We learned a lot and came away impressed, educated and enthused by the prospects of these capabilities for all such airframes that make the grade of earning FIKI certification... a process that the FAA does not undertake lightly. In this two-part addition to our series on this upgrade, we got a chance to get INSIDE the engineering process that created this airframe.... and now, so can you. Come meet and listen to the people who designed and built this airframe and get educated on how difficult and rigorous such a process is (and should be). The KIP program, called project "KIWI" by the folks who were in on the secret development project, has been years in the making and required extensive engineering, serious rework of the airframe and construction protocols, and lots of flight testing... some of which was fairly intense. There are a number of features inherent in this massive upgrade... extended TKS panels for the wing, vertical stabilizer, horizontal stabilizers (including the very end of the leading edge of the elevator counterbalance), as well as dual rate redundant TKS de-icing fluid pumps, a windshield TKS...
